Coping with miscarriage
The vast majority of patients who have experienced a miscarriage will go on to achieve a healthy family, so it’s important to stay positive. However, a small percentage of couples will experience more than one consecutive miscarriage. If you have three or more consecutive early pregnancy losses this is called recurrent miscarriage, and affects about 2% of women trying to have a baby.
